Things happen when you drink too much mescal.
One night, with not enough food in my belly,
he kept on buying. I’m a girl who’ll fall
damn near in love with gratitude and, well, he
was hot and generous and so the least
that I could do was let him kiss me, hard
and soft and any way you want it, beast
and beauty, lime and salt—sweet Bacchus’ pards—
and when his friend showed up I felt so warm
and generous I let him kiss me too.
His buddy asked me if it was the worm
inside that makes me do the things I do.
I wasn’t sure which worm he meant, the one
I ate? The one that eats at me alone?

Mezcal: A one time Mexican moonshine is now the drink du jour in foreign lands

Mezcal. An ancient spirit on the rise. Shedding its reputation as the moonshine of Mexican villages, this agave distillate is now the toast of trendy bars and fine restaurants worldwide. Produced in small hand-crafted batches in a few states in southern Mexico, mezcal has grown into a vibrant cottage industry in the last few years, helping bring much-needed work to rural villages.
